Skoda Vision RS Concept focuses on performance and emotive new design.
Škoda presents at the 2018 Paris Motor Show its spectacular-looking plug-in hybrid concept - Skoda Vision RS - that apparently heralds design language of new models from the Czech brand (Rapid successor for sure).
The Vision RS will remain just a study, but several plug-ins are coming within a few years and that is very good news as Skoda targets affordable cars with a good value to money ratio, which could open electrification to a wider customer base than in the case of Volkswagen (parent company).
A look into the future with the ŠKODA VISION RS
The ŠKODA VISION RS concept study demonstrates how ŠKODA envisages future sporty RS models and also a future compact vehicle. The ŠKODA VISION RS combines the sportiness of an emotive new design language with a high degree of sustainability by using recycled carbon fibre and vegan materials, for example. Apart from the carbon fibre, a high-tech material that is well known from motorsport, the interior is also dominated by cut crystal glass that is illuminated and animated. The electric powertrain guarantees driving dynamics and efficiency.
